Greetings to Dear Parents and Students!
Dedicated to the lasting memory of its founder Giani Kartar Singh, GKSM Govt College Tanda Urmar is situated on Jalandhar-Pathankot National Highway. As a result of the strenuous efforts of Giani Kartar Singh, the college got established in 1950 in a part of the building of local high school. Later, in 1972 the college was shifted to the present vast campus of about 48 acres. This cathedral of learning has the distinction of being the first and the foremost rural college. From a tiny sapling in 1950, GKSM Govt. College Tanda has grown into a mighty banyan during the last five eventful decades. The institution has served the state and society by producing a large number of academicians, teachers, thinkers, doctors, engineers, scientists, administrators, politicians, statesmen, warriors, artists, social workers and responsible citizens. The college has made commendable and recognizable contribution in imparting education to the poor and less privileged students of this rural belt. Apart from imparting quality education and emphasizing all round development of the personality of the students, the college is striving to infuse a sense of social and moral responsibility, to kindle interest in co-curricular activities, to inculcate positive values in them and to prepare them face the new challenges that they may face in the intricate labyrinth of highly competitive world.
